About the course
The development and negotiation of indirect cost (IDC) rates, also called Facilities and Administrative rates, is a deeply involved process. Knowing which IDC method best applies to your organization is key, whether for state and local governments, universities, or nonprofit organizations. You will develop your understanding of IDCs further by gaining valuable hands-on experience as you calculate and negotiate rates under the Uniform Guidance (2 CFR 200). This is an elective course in all tracks of the GMCP™.
